Every day, Murphy customers move their goods from our warehouses to destinations all over the country. We use our asset based fleet of Murphy trucks to help them do this and offer FTL transport services. Operating out of Iowa, Minnesota’s Twin Cities, and the Kansas City, Missouri, area, we help you get your goods to where they need to be.

Advantages of Using an Asset Based Carrier

There are many benefits to working with a reliable asset based carrier like Murphy Logistics.

  • Reliability
  • cost-effectiveness
  • and liability

It is easier for carriers to maintain high standards when they control more variables, such as managing their own equipment and employing their own drivers. 

These same factors also make it easier for the carrier to manage costs effectively. At the same time, all liability for any issues is centralized in one company. And our model of managing our own fleet plus partnering with other carriers gives us the flexibility to offer customers the best of both worlds.

What is FTL Transport?

FTL stands for ‘Full Truck Load.’ As the name implies, it involves shipping enough goods to fill up a truck’s entire cargo area. This is in contrast to LTL or ‘Less Than Truck Load,’ which means that your goods only fill up part of the cargo area, so you share the space with other shippers.

The main benefit of shipping FTL is that your goods go directly to their destination since you are the only one using the cargo area. As such, they will arrive more quickly at their intended destination. The desire for this simple and direct option is why we offer FTL transport at Murphy.
